It deals with relations between Christians and Jews in southern France and northern Spain in the twelfth century--not something you see every day. As a mystery, however, I found it disappointing. I don't feel the author gave the reader sufficient clues to have a chance at solving the crime.
No one was really investigating it, either; the truth just happened to come out eventually. Dec 20, Joan rated it liked it. I enjoyed this book, as I love the series as a whole, but I missed Catherine and Edgar, as this gook focused on her cousin Solomon.
The Outcast Dove (Catherine LeVendeur, book 9) by Sharan Newman
He is an interesting character, and the mystery is good- again I did not foresee the conclusion, but I did miss Catherine. Oct 14, Dona Krueger rated it liked it Shelves: historical-mystery. Sharan Newman's medieval mystery was quite good. Unfortunately, I haven't read her first ones which would give continuity to the characters not only in this book, but referred to from past books.
She is very enjoyable, but Ellis Peters still remains my favorite medieval mystery writer. Oct 17, Vicki Cline rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-mysteries.

Also the stories of Jehan, Hubert and Solomon's father were resolved. Jul 30, Sara marked it as to-read. Aug 19, Frank rated it liked it Shelves: mysteries. A nice addition to Newman's series involving Catherine Levandeur as this book doesn't have that protagonist at all, but is only made up of a few side characters from previous books in the series.
Oct 03, Diane rated it it was amazing. Loved the story line about Solomon. I loved the Solomon POV. Dec 15, Susan Rothenberg rated it it was amazing. A great beach read, which is where I read it, that takes place in France and Spain in the s. A good historical fiction. Apr 28, Julie rated it liked it Shelves: mystery , read-in , read-since-august , mystery-historical-read. This series moves all around France and Europe, but the same cast of characters pops up each time. It drives me nuts. Oct 02, Lorie Richards rated it it was amazing.
Another good mystery taking place during the middle ages. If you like mysteries and history, you might like this one. Dec 26, Paula rated it really liked it Shelves: zreads. I really enjoyed Solomon's tale. He could probably have his own book series. Didn't really miss the chaos of Catherine's family. Also good to see Hubert again. Sandie rated it it was amazing Dec 13, Becky rated it really liked it Aug 07, Ariel rated it it was amazing May 15, Carolyn rated it liked it Aug 11, Chris rated it it was amazing Aug 03, Annie Wren rated it it was ok May 06, Gwennith Angasan rated it it was amazing Jun 25, Delynn rated it really liked it Apr 15, Nan Lee rated it it was amazing Feb 09, Candace Noble rated it it was amazing Sep 29, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
